Pacton Gold Inc (CVE:PAC) said Dale Ginn has been appointed executive chairman of the board and a director of the company.
It also announced that Dominic Verdejo has resigned as chairman and director; he leaves with the company’s best wishes.
Ginn is an experienced mining executive and geologist of nearly 30 years. He is the founder of a number of exploration and mining companies and has led and participated in numerous gold and base metal discoveries, many of which are in production today including Gladiator, 007, Hinge, 777 and others.
While specializing in complex, structurally-controlled gold deposits, he also has extensive mine-operations, development and start-up experience, Pacton said.
Ginn is the current vice-president of exploration at BonTerra as well as the president and chief executive officer of the newly formed Gatling Exploration Inc.
"We welcome Dale to the Pacton team and are looking forward to further developments with his participation as a leader in an official capacity, said Alex Pismiris, the interim president and chief executive officer of Pacton.
“He has certainly contributed quietly to date as a founder and large shareholder who has already spent considerable time and effort with our team," he added.
